Road to Manila - 10.09.12
The following is a mini interview of generic questions that we posed to all bands that wanted to answer:

Road to Manila


1. How did you get your band name?

Our former bass player came up with the name, and we don't really know the story behind it - it has something to do with a war in the Philippines, but that's all we know. For us the name has a completely different meaning, something along the lines of Jack Kerouac's notion of the open road in "On The Road" where the real goal isn't in the destination, but how you get there - living in the moment. Manila, in a sense, is just a kind of Neverland, and it's all about finding Neverland.

2. How did this band get started?

Nicolai and Niclas started this band when they were just kids really. Just fooling around in the rehearsal space. A lot of changes have been made over the years, but that's how it started.

3. What bands are you influenced by?

We have a lot of influences, but some of the most influential bands would be: Hundredth, Architects, Counterparts, Comeback Kid, Dead Swans, and many of the new melodic hardcore bands coming from the UK at the moment, etc. I've probably forgotten some obvious influences.

4. If you could tour with any bands, past or present, who would they be and why?

The bands mentioned above, mainly because they're our favorite bands.

5. Best food to eat on tour?

Anything but pasta. Fastfood is a big hit for us.

6. Why should people listen to your band?

Because we really care about what we do and we're a sincere and hardworking band. And we write good and decent melodic hardcore songs.

7. If you could be any athlete, which athlete would you switch places with?

I look a lot like the Portuguese soccer player Raul Meireles, so the transition wouldn't be so difficult, although I'm a terrible soccer player and would never have played for Chelsea.

8. If you won a Grammy, who would you thank?


9. If you could change something about the music industry, what would it be?

There's nothing wrong with the industry in our genre really, but I would change the mindset of the audiences. It's so important for people to go to the shows and support their scene, cause if no one shows up, we can't play shows - and we can't make money of record sales as the big names in pop music can.

10. Memorable tour experience?

Can't seem to think of anything special, but what comes to mind is when I was driving across Germany with food in my left hand and a Red Bull in my right hand, while all the other guys in the car were asleep, and I was steadily falling asleep behind the wheel.

11. What does AP.net mean to you?

A place where I can get news from the scene and discover great new bands, read reviews, and basically just keep myself updated.

12. What is your favorite song to play?

Any, just as long as we get to play.

13. What is your vacation spot of choice?

Any interesting metropolis, I guess?

14. What music reminds you of your childhood?

I'm not proud of this answer, but Kim Larsen (Danish folk singer).

15. If you could have any super power, what would it be? Why?

X-ray vision for obvious reasons.

16. Any pre-show superstitions or rituals?

Not really. Just make sure that you have been to the toilet before the show.

17. What is something that most fans don't know about you?

I really don't know. Next question.

18. What is your assessment of the current state of radio? Do you think it's a place where your band could flourish?

No, we have no interest in the whole idea of radio. None of the channels in Denmark would ever consider playing our music anyway.

19. What do you like to do in your spare time?

Play music, draw, and read a good book.

20. What kind of hidden talents do you have?

I have incredible control of my facial expression and I'm a good liar.
